able to keep their plans. now with the obama care website kind of sort of working, the president is making his sales pitch to the american people again. >>> also in national news, we already know the train was going too fast. now we know the engineer says he was in a daze before it derailed. what else will we learn when investigators update us this hour on that deadly train crash in the bronx? >>> and the pop culture lead. johnny's in the -- thinking about the french government charging bob dylan for inciting hate? bob dylan? the times, indeed, are a changing. good afternoon, everyone, welcome to "the lead." great to be back with you. i'm jake tapper. we'll begin with the national lead for most of the year. paula deen held the award for worst public disaster, and obama care rolled out, bad headlines, frustrated customers. during that time president obama explained, and eventually apologized. the white house claiming healthcare.gov handled 1 million visitors without major issues, the president is launching a massive three-week-long blitz to entice americans back to the website to
a little bit, and what have we got? holy smokes, we've got a return by obama care. this is chris davis, he's a believer, he's got all those obama blockers out there. he's going to go all the way! it's going to work! it's going to work! look at obama care, it's going to work! they ain't giving up. 109 yards in jordan harris stadium, 87,000 fans loving every bit of it, and guess what, four times that many people went to the website and signed up today. you see that? liberals, democrats, progressives, believers in obama care. don't ever give up. it's never over. even the arrogance of alabama who thinks they can beat everybody anywhere, any time, any day. even with one second left, they think they're going to get it to you. and that's where they're just like the republicans! they never give up. so here we are. it's the beginning of december. and obama care, son of a gun, is working better than ever. mae made the deadline, didn't they? but, you know, this news hasn't stopped the republican plot to take your health care away. healthcare.gov got off to a rocky rollout, no doubt about that. the we
for that all important briefing from white house press secretary jay carney on the obama care website. hi, everyone. i'm gretchen carlson. this is "the real story." meantime, healthcare.gov got a facelift this morning. all part of the fixes they are promising. even as the white house deadline to reboot its website passes. now a former top white house adviser to the president said it could be years before it runs smoothly. >> it may take until 2017 when this president leaves office. you're going to see almost every state in this country running their own exchanges eventually and expanding medicaid. i think it will work really well then. >> host of "power play" on fox news.com live. 2017. chris, this thing was signed in 2010. that would be seven years past signing that it would actually work? >> well, and that's very bad news if you happen to be a democrat who's running for office in the next two election cycles. now, our expectation is that in time they will eventually be able to operate a website. it would be unfathomable that at some point they would not be able to figure out how to oper
are waiting to hear from the white house for the first time since they hit the deadline for the obama care website to be fixed. >> some vower ares say the site's ills are not cured>> reporter: while the white house declared victory on turning the corner on the website. they say there is back end problems to the site in completing the process through the check out counter and you will communicate with the insurance company when you have enrolled and signed up. as they log on to healthcare.gov, there is jumbled things and what not that suggest that the site is not ready. you have a larger group of people trying to log on that it is turning the corner and that may explain why outside help advisors like dr. emmanuel seemed to be lowering expectation. >> like goggle and facebook they are constantly improving and this one has a way to go. it is working reasonably well. >> reporter: that so manies to lower the bar a bit on how well it is really working. and republican law makers are not questioning whether the website is fixed, but wonder if people will be more frustrated when they so what the
and politics of obama care in general, how is that playing on the ground already? >> it's playing very differently depending on where you are. i'll give you two examples. you probably heard about kentucky where the website is going really well. i know the new york times and "washington post" talked about that a lot. if you go to kentucky, what you hear is that mitch mcconnell is still loud and proud saying we should repeal obama care. and the democratic candidate there running and her name is allison grimes. so far even though kentucky has a good website, she is still very weary of this law. her view is still obama care not going to help you win in kentucky. on the other hand in florida, you have charlie crist, now a democrat, running for governor there. he made one of his big issues the medicate expansion which is popular. florida has not allowed the medicaid expansion. and he thinks it's a winning issue with the democrats in florida. >> the website is working better but still underlying issues only just beginning to make head way like identity verification and enkolment data which is
obama care, and i know you don't, even though it's built on market-based ideas of choice and competition in the private sector, then you should explain how exactly you'd cut costs and cover more people and make insurance more secure. you owe it to the american people to tell us what you are for. not just what you're against. >> our senior white house correspondent jim an costas is joining us from the white house right now. sounds the president was throwing down a little bit of a gauntlet to the republicans. what else did he say? >> he really was, wolf. you know, this was billed as a speech on the economy but as more and more details came out there are a couple of things that would emerge in his speech. he was sort of going back to his base trying to sort of enlivan what has been a dispirited liberal base of the democratic party. sort of disappointed with the way this rollout has occurred with the affordable care act. but at the same time, you know, white house officials say there was something substantive going on in this speech and that the president was talking about income inequality
, there's been a lot of noise around obama care. and its launch in october. and the failures that float from that. but as you know, joy, i've said from the very beginning of this year that, you know, the party has an opportunity to put some real -- substantive policy on the table to differentiate itself not just rhetorically from this administration, but, you know, and politically, but also in terms of what it hopes to accomplish in something -- with something like obama care. and i think that that opportunity is still there. the question he is, do they take advantage of it going into a new year, where you're going to have on top of, you know, the watch, the death watch by republicans and the hopeful watch by democrats, you know, in the launch of obama care, the budget issues, sequester and all these things begin to take a new shape, beginning in just a few short weeks. >> and, you know, jonathan, a lot of times presidencies are pronounced dead over and over again by the media, every wrong turn -- it's the end of the presidency. so, you know, sort of give us perspective. put the obama a
. but now we can judge obama care the way we should judge obama care, which is can it sign up a lot of people who need health insurance. the evidence from the states where it's working well, california and kentucky are notable examples, is that the structure of the thing actually can work. and so if they have indeed solved most of these problems, it will probably take another couple of weeks at least to get the website working the way they want, but they made progress and now we can judge it on its merits and not on some tech glitch. >> well, you also have the white house not being quite as definitive as they have been in the past, making these statements about this is where we are, this is what's going to happen. listen to ed rendell, obviously former democratic governor of pennsylvania, on "morning joe" this morning. >> i think there's still a chance for this to achieve its basic goal. that doesn't excuse the mismanagement early. but there's still a chance to achieve a basic goal, which is to drive down the health care curve and also to ensure over 30 million people who don't have

. glitch is the term the obama care people would love everybody to use. it kind of implies that these are small, fixable problems when, in fact, serious systemic problems remain. that 100,000 number, give or take 10% or 15% each way that signed up to the moment on the federal obama care exchange is more than doubled by the state exchanges. there's a relative handful of those compared to the states where you go on healthcare.gov. it doesn't reflect well on the federal system. there's also a concern, a big concern about the so-called back end of the website. all websites like this one have a front and back, take, forexample, amazon.com on this cyber monday. log on and click you want to buy something. that's the front end. the back end actually sends you what you have ordered. the problem, we are told, on the nd of obama care has insurance providers concerned. when people log on, navigate through, qualify and pick their plan, okay, buy. they think they have coverage from that point on, they don't, first of all. second of all, the information sent by healthcare.gov is so poorly

on the positive from the right. >> there is no good news about obama care. we shut down the government. we took this nation to the brink of financial collapse because of obama care. and most people expected that when the website was fixed it would get better. and now young people aren't signing up because they can't afford it, doesn't make any economic sense for them. >> if i can just say this -- if you look in the long arc of history and perpetuity until the world ends, if people do have health care, many programs that were started in the government didn't work as well as people expected in the beginning months. might you be jumping too soon on something that could end up being good for the american people? >> if we can cover more people and keep health care affordable and accessible and have it be high quality, sure. but that's not what this is doing. this is causing people chaos and confusion and more money. >> for now. >> it could in the process run down the economy. this hasn't, look, the president -- >> i've got to go. my producers are screaming at me. we will continue this conversation.
want everybody to be clear about that. >> a clear and firm message today. you just heard it. obama care is working, and it's not going away. president obama saying the website for the affordable health care act is working well for the vast majority of users. what isn't working well, though, in california, is this political brand. a new field poll, take a look, shows 43% of californians disapprove of mr. obama's job performance. that's an increase from 35% in july. nbc bay area political analyst larry gersten joins us. larry, is this a cause for democrats to be concerned even here in california? >> they may not say so, but yeah, they are concerned on several fronts. look, to begin with, the president lost support among key constituencies. take a look at the growing ranks of disapproval. these are pretty important. women up to 40% from 27% a few months ago. latinos, 34% disapproving compared to 18%. union households, up to 43% from 25% a few months ago. these were major pillars of the democratic coalition in 2012, and they are abandoning ship. >> usually here in california, we're kind of
of americans enrolling for obama care this week alone is higher than the number for all of the months of october when the health care website went online with all kinds of problems. the source credits the website's improved performance for the enrollment of 29,000 new customers. november numbers are due out soon. as you know, people are signing up through state exchanges as well. >>> with a signature program finally grinding forward, the president signaled today he is going back on the offensive. the aforementioned jim acosta has that story for us now today. what did he say? >> reporter: that's right, brooke. i think you can describe today as, if yesterday was the obama care rebranding effort getting launched, today might have been an obama branding -- rebranding effort getting launched because the president went back to his base, was trying to rib up his base with two events in washington, one at the event center for american progress, a liberal think tank in washington, talking about the economy, issues bi s like incom disparity, called for a hike in minimum wage, extending unemploy
